By CROOT, James SPACE CHIMPS (G) Directed by Kirk De Micco * * 1/2 Reviewed by James Croot -------------------- Ham III (Andy Samberg) has a lot to live up to.

In fact, this animated science-fiction comedy is less than 90 minutes long, the point at which most youngsters start tuning out. On the downside is, well, almost...

When he was about 8, the Houston native commandeered his father's home movie camera to make sci-fi comedies. He remembers his first film...
